Site Adaptive Work
Pop-up performances in and around the audience, this site-adaptive work was originally created for the Manhattan Bridge Archway to enliven the newly reopened passage between northern and southern DUMBO neighborhoods. PUBLIC skirts lines between public and private moments and blurs boundaries between audience and performer, with movement erupting within and around the audience, who wear headphones delivering the sound score. The work culminates in a flash mob.
Premiere: June 2011
Length: 60 min
“The interactive and often athletic work performed at dusk in and around a crowd of spectators transformed the lofty architectural Brooklyn landmark into an intimate stage for contemporary dance.” - Sparked
Co-commissioned by the Brooklyn Arts Council and the DUMBO Improvement District
